Cool. I wonder if this is the same show I saw in July or previous material. A lot of Covid stuff in the show I saw. He's so funny and brilliant. And he smokes WAY too much!

Not even 7 minutes in and this is one of the most offensive things Iíve heard in a while. Lol

So funny and a lot of ďlook around to make sure itís ok to laughĒ.

Itís amazing what Dave can get away with.

And yea, already all about Covid.


So damn funny.

Wow. Trying to unpack what I just watched. Itís hilarious. Itís serious. Itís heartbreaking. Itís offensive. Itís everything.

When he says this will be his last special for a minute, I hope itís not like 5 years or longer.

The ending photo montage made it seem like heís going to be gone for a while, and we know heís disciplined enough to do that.

Final photo before it fades away is him and Norm. And I wonder how recent this was because Norm is smiling but still looks like heís in very very poor health.

The second half of the 70-minutes is more stories and social commentary with fewer punchlines. Iíve seen some on Twitter react that the audience was lousy for not laughing all the time.

But this special just felt different. He was going for something a bit different here.

The showrunner of Dear White People, Jaclyn Moore, is refusing to work with/boycotting Netflix, over this special. Another group asked Netflix to take the special down.

Comedy is supposed to be edgy and make you think and sometimes be uncomfortable.

He is a master at that.

Not shocking some are whining. That is what this day and age is no one can get their feelings hurt. Fuck that so sick of it.

Not that it would matter a hill of beans but if they take it down. I will drop Netflix.

I'm sure that is easy to say and do when the show you worked on just ended.

Glad I watched it when I did.

Yep. I like that show. Though I heard the final season is a musical. Ugh. Not sure I'll like that.

I cannot imagine any scenario where they would take it down unless Dave himself asked them to, as they already did that for Chappelle Show a while back, per his request.

Nobody gives a shit about Cuties, whatever that is. Dave Chappelle is the biggest comedian in the world.

Iím just mad heís going away for a while. Heís funny as fuck.

I enjoyed this one. Interesting story about his comedian friend.

The only time Iím ďoffendedĒ by Chapelle is when he smokes on stage.

Transgender employees at Netflix are going to stage a walkout a week from today.

No way in hell Netflix pulls this special.

So far the push back is pretty muted, especially when put against the Cuties situation from last year. (And thankfully fewer politicians and less litigation involved)

So yeah, most likely safe.
